International Perspectives on the World Social Forum




Under the banner of 'Another World is Possible,' many tens of thousands of social movement activists and organizers gather each year at the World Social Forum and in regional, national and local forums to dialogue, debate and develop joint strategies for moving forward a common social agenda.

What is the World Social Forum, and what are its core values and organizing principles? How in only seven years has this phenomenon exploded around the world, to inspire hundreds of thousands of people on almost every continent? What are the challenges and contradictions in the process? How has the social forum helped to build and strengthen the global justice movement in other countries and regions, and what does it have to offer us here in the United States?

In this 2-hour panel, representatives from the organizing councils of forums in Africa, Latin America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East will discuss what the WSF experience has meant in their own regions, and share their perspectives on the global context of the first United States Social Forum and its potential meaning for other movements around the world. ussf ussf2007
